Compress is a multilayered medical dressing that acts as a distracting and absorbing agent. By the nature of the action compresses are cold (lotions), hot, warming and medicinal.

Cold compresses, or lotions, are used for bruises, injuries, bruises. They cause local cooling and reduce swelling and pain.

For the preparation of cold compresses,take a piece of a thick towel, folded in several layers, and soak it in cold water or in a special liquid of pharmaceutical preparation (lead lotion). To make a cold compress, you must moisten a piece of towel in a lead lotion or cold water, squeeze the tissue well and apply to a sore spot. When warming the cloth again, moisten it in a lead lotion or water and attach it to the sore spot. Change the lotion every 2-3 minutes.

Hot compresses are used for resorption of local inflammatory foci.

Prepare a thick cloth, oilcloth, woolen cloth or a heating pad.

Dampen the cloth in hot water, squeeze it well and attach it to the body. On top of the oilcloth put warmer or warm woolen cloth. Change the compress every 10-15 minutes.

Warmer is used for resorptioninflammatory processes, warming of the body and as an analgesic. Under the influence of the warmer, the vessels of the skin and more deeply located tissues expand, which has a therapeutic effect on the course of inflammatory processes, reduces the pain caused by spasms.

Warmers are rubber and electric. Rubber heating pad is a capacity of 1-1.5 liters with a tightly screwed plug. To carry out the warming procedure, pour the heating pad on 3-4 volumes so that it is not too heavy, then push the air out with the hot-water bottle. It is good to tighten the stopper, tilt the warmer upside down to check for leaks. Wipe it dry, wrap it in a towel and put it to the patient. The degree of heating the skin under the warmer should be checked periodically. To prevent pigmentation, you can lubricate the skin under the heating pad with petroleum jelly or grease. A very hot hot-water bottle is put first on the blanket, under the sheet and after these events directly on the body. Warm up the bottle until it cools down.

Weak and seriously ill people are not always fastreact to thermal irritation, so they may have a burn. Special caution is needed for patients who are in an unconscious state and who have lost skin sensitivity. In such patients it is necessary to check the degree of skin heating and to monitor the correct position of the warmer.

Instead of a water heater, you can use an electric heater, the degree of heating of which is regulated by the rheostat. The regulator is located at the junction of the cord with the pillow. You need to use it with interruptions.

For local heating, use water at a temperature of 40 ° C. The heater is poured half, then it is softer and better attached to the surface to be coated

To warm the legs and the bed, the water in the heating pad must be 60 ° C. A newborn warmer is placed at a distance of 5-6 cm from the elongated legs of the child.

Thermal procedures are contraindicated for oncological diseases. In these cases, you can use the heating pad only after permission of the doctor.

Because children have very sensitive skin, to avoid burns, the heating pad can not be placed directly on the naked body. It should be carefully wrapped with a towel.

Heating compresses, unlike hot-water bottlesuse not external heat, but internal, accumulating in the tissues of the body. Heating compresses increase blood circulation in the skin, tissues and organs, resulting in reduced puffiness, inflammation is removed, convulsively contracted muscles relax. This compress is made of four layers. The first layer is a cotton cloth moistened with room temperature water and wrung out. On top of the fabric, apply a layer of compress paper or oilcloth, protecting the fabric from drying and retaining heat. Paper size should be slightly larger than the fabric. On top of the cloth, tightly lay the oilcloth. On top, both layers are covered with cotton wool, a woolen scarf or scarf. And, finally, all this netgo is bandaged and kept for 6-12 hours (before drying). If the fabric has dried before, remove the compress. Before replacing the used compress with a new one, the place where it was applied should be thoroughly rinsed with warm water to avoid skin irritation.

Heating compresses in a warm form are used wheninflammation of the joints and angina, with inflammation on the patient's skin after improperly injected. Warming compresses cause a prolonged and persistent expansion of the surface vessels, which leads to the influx of blood to the focus of inflammation, resulting in resorption of the inflammatory focus of underlying tissues and pain reduction.

Warming compresses should not be placed if the patient has signs of dermatitis (skin disease) and boils.
